Woman diagnosed with brain cancer becomes a 'Sky Warrior'

-
Three brave women took to the skies Saturday morning for a free falling opportunity as guests of 'Jump at Life' in Eloy, Arizona.
 
The 'Jump at Life' event was co-founded two years ago by Dana Block, a terminally ill young Arizonan.
 
It is dedicated to introducing terminally ill adults to the freedom of skydiving and tunnel flight.
 
On Saturday, 25-year-old Lilly Benefiel of Texas became the fifth person to earn the prestigious title of 'Sky Warrior'.
 
Lilly was diagnosed at the age of 22 with stage three brain cancer and spent a lot of time at the hospital in Dallas for treatment.
 
On Saturday she was miles away from any hospital to let loose and have fun.
 
The two others who jumped on Saturday were co-founder Dana Block and fellow Sky Warrior, Bekki Roth.
 
All three girls have been diagnosed with brain cancer.
